The Scientific and Organising Committee (SOC) invites you to submit a proposal for a session to form part of the scientific programme of the congress.  The IEC have a well-deserved reputation for scientific and educational excellence and the SOC would like you to contribute to this.  Parallel Sessions are structured from and based on a variety of themes selected from the session proposals submitted.

The aim of the SOC is to create a comprehensive programme which will encompass topical and varied themes.  Please note that the SOC will be responsible for the final selection of topics and sessions and that presentations and/or speakers may be changed or amended to fit the overall programme as the SOC deems it appropriate.
